Former Miami Dolphins defensive end Kim Bokamper will open a sports bar on Las Olas with the neighborhood's largest LED TV screen. Dubbed Bo’s Pub, the place will open August 9 on the first floor of The Balcony, Bokamper's New Orleans-style eatery that debuted in May 2018.
The idea to combine the two concepts was a direct response to customer feedback. “We opened Bo’s Pub as a response to guest feedback," Bokamper says. "We've had great success with Bokamper’s Sports Bar & Grill and its five locations, so we brought that same sports bar atmosphere to Las Olas, but with a twist."
The new restaurant's main screen will be nearly 12 feet wide by 5 feet high, with dozens more TVs located throughout the 2,000-square-foot space. The menu will feature pub-style fare.Start with small plates like Andouille sausage served with a savory cabbage and mustard dip ($13); Cajun-crusted Southern fried chicken fillets served with maple mayonnaise and BBQ sauce ($11);
Larger plates include the Bo’s Pub Burger is topped with housemade bacon jam, beer cheese, pickled serranos, and caramelized onions ($15). Fish and chips tacos pay homage to the dish with potato strings, tartar sauce, lettuce, and tomato ($15). And a Philly cheesesteak is made with sweet peppers, sautéed onions, and a creamy cheddar cheese sauce ($16).
